Basingstoke Canal - Brookwood Rally - Spring Bank Holiday

We now have mobile broadband on board Pluto so we plan to blog on our travels again. Originally we planned to go onto the Basingstoke in mid-May, cruise to Odiham and return to Brookwood for the rally over Spring Bank Holiday weekend. However Deep cut locks were unavailable so we went nowhere before the rally. The Brookwood Rally was a low key event used as a feeder for the Odiham Rally the following weekend. Due to various commitments we were unable to go on to Odiham, so returned to moorings at Hampton. On the Saturday at Brookwood we were visited by very good friends fro Minima Yacht Club, Pat & Les and Phil & Shirely who all live locally. An excellent lunch was held on the Rally site at Brookwood Country Park, followed by an evening BBQ at Phil & Shirley's.
